Will there ever be another investing book like this? It’s unlikely.

University of Berkshire Hathaway is a remarkable retelling of the lessons, wisdom, and investment strategies handed down personally from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to shareholders during 30 years of their closed-door annual meetings.

From this front row seat, you’ll see one of the greatest wealth-building records in history unfold, year by year.

If you’re looking for dusty old investment theory, there are hundreds of other books waiting to cure you of insomnia. However, if you’re looking for an investing book that’s as personal as it is revelatory, look no further.

Packed with Buffett and Munger’s timeless, generous, and often hilarious wisdom, University of Berkshire Hathaway will keep serious investors turning pages late into the night:

• Get unique insight into the thinking, strategies, and decisions–both good and bad–that made Buffett and Munger two of the world’s greatest investors.

• Understand the critical reasoning that leads Buffett and Munger to purchase a particular company, including their methods for assigning value.

• Learn the central tenets of Buffett’s value-investing philosophy “straight from the horse’s mouth.”

• Enjoy Munger’s biting wit as he goes after any topic that offends him.

• Discover Buffett’s distaste for “commonly accepted strategies” like modern portfolio theory.

• See why these annual meetings are often called “an MBA in a weekend.”

The University of Berkshire Hathaway is an excellent text that provides some wonderful insights into Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffet, and Charlie Munger. 

I have read everything there is to read on Buffet and Munger. The University of Berkshire Hathaway is superb and I love the year by year way that it is compiled. I enjoyed it immensely.

This is one of those very few nonfiction books that is a one night read.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. It took me a long time to finish it. That was not the fault of the authors. It was the fact that both Buffett and Munger follow the philosophy of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Therefore the basic principles they taught in 1986 they were still repeating in 2014 because they worked! But it was a bit dull and repetitive when I read the notes on several year’s meetings in a row. I enjoyed the authors comments.

I’ve had the good fortune to be able to attend a few Berkshire Hathaway meetings. This was a really enjoyable book for me to get a feel for the meetings I was unable to attend. There’s a lot of good information, I enjoyed a number of amusing quotes from Munger/Buffett and there was quite a bit of information I hadn’t run across before.

Well worth it! Here you can read nuggets and exchanges from past annual meetings like this one from 2007, before the financial crisis: ‘”Don’t you want real-time information?” Munger replied that if you can mark to market to report any level of profits you want, you’ll get terrible human behavior. The person replied, “You just don’t understand accounting.”‘

A great way to understand the simplicity and consistency of Buffett and Munger’s thinking over 30+ years. There are some repetitive themes, but that seems to be a function of BRK sticking to their guns. I would have liked more of the analysis that’s provided for some years by the authors – they write with directness and insight similar to Warren and Charlie.
